Will Poulter quits Twitter

WILL Poulter has quit Twitter.

The Maze Runner star is taking a step back from the social media platform to focus on his mental health.

In a lengthy post, he shared, “I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to everybody who has watched Bandersnatch and for their responses (whatever they may be) to the material we created. I accept all criticisms and it’s been a delight to learn that so many of you enjoyed what many people worked very hard to produce!

“As we all know there is a balance to be struck in our engagements with social media. There are positives to enjoy and inevitable negatives that are best avoided. It’s a balance that I have struggled with for a while now and, in the interest of my mental health, I feel the time has come to change my relationship with social media.”

However, the 25-year-old actor insists he will still continue to show public support for the organisations he works with.

He added in his post, “I don’t want to appear unappreciative of all the amazing support I have received online for which I am genuinely so grateful, nor do I want my disengagement with social media to be at the expense of any of the organisations I am lucky to work with. So I will still be posting occasionally for and with @AntiBullingPro @leap_cc @MayMeasure and @bptcompany among others … This is not the end. Consider it an alternative path.” – BANG!
